Bam Bam retains. There goes that 5% chance. Odd shift heavily in his favor for Monday night in Puebla.

DQ in the second match was for Bronco pulling Starman’s mask.

Strong Man did not beat Tanahashi in the first round of the NJPW Cup. :( Tanahashi still can’t pull a bus, so there’s that. He won with an inside cradle, and Ultimo Guerrero clearly will be using that knowledge to his advantage.

Blue Demon Jr. lost the NWA World Heavyweight Championship to Adam Pearce. I suspect he won’t be without a title for long. Demon did find time to respond to Mephisto, saying he’s not an NWA official, but acting on behalf of them.

Electroshock dedicated his win to all his fans, including his son. Which reminds me to note how he’s covered up his tattoo of Lady Apache with a monster or something. Safe to assume things aren’t going well between them? (I don’t like to go into personal stuff, but when you tattoo it on your chest, it does seem like fair ground.) In this article, “Mr. Kennedy” is identified as a wrestler from California. Huh.

SuperLuchas says LA Park is still on for the XLAW show. Perros del Mal have not said anything, but maybe they made it clear at tonight’s show.

The ranking of importance Ovaciones gives to today’s lucha libre stories: 1) Bam Bam’s title match, 2) Dhani Jones, 3) (and very tiny) LA Park showing up at Rey de Reyes. Which is actually a lot for them when it’s not in the DF area.

This article about upcoming changes on MTV2 includes a random mention of Lucha Libre. Can’t find a word about it elsewhere.

The original Nacho Libre” says he bares no grudge to Hollywood for using his story. This is not Fray Tormenta, this is the guy pretending he’s been Nacho Libre for 15 years before the movie came out, and he is some kind of great for pulling this off.

SuperLuchas #355 has AAA Rey de Reyes coverage.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.
